Ah, the question that never seems to end. I've had quite a few people ask me this, so let me explain...
As you probably know by now, we are doing a destination wedding. When most people book condos or house's for a week, they book Saturday to Saturday or Sunday to Sunday. This isn't really a very friendly schedule for a wedding if you are wanting to do it on a Saturday. Since everyone will be there for the week, we knew we could just pick a day during the week to have the wedding. So the next question is what day? Well Monday is July 4th so that was out. Tuesday the 5th is my mom and step-dad's b-day, didn't want to do it then. So really that left Wednesday the 6th and Thursday the 7th. Hmmm....
To be honest, I just preferred how 7/7/11 sounded. :) So that is how our Thursday wedding was born.
Now that day is exactly one week from today! I remember thinking how far away it sounded when we booked everything. 200 days, 150 days, 100 days, 75 days... Then it got to be 2 months, 1 month, 3 weeks, 2 weeks, and now 1 little week. OMG. I'm not nervous about my marriage to Gabe. Not at all. But, I am extremely nervous about everything going right the day of. It doesn't help when you look at the 10 day forecast and see that the day of your outdoor beach wedding has a 60% chance of rain. I'm just having to trust that everything will work out. Today, I'm busy getting everything together for our trip, finalizing details with all of the vendors, and doing laundry. Say a little prayer that I can get everything together!
I may not blog very much (if at all) during the next week or so. We're leaving for the beach tomorrow, so things are a little hectic! I will try to schedule a post or two if I can though. If not, then the next time you will here from me, I'll be a Mrs.!!
Wish us luck!
